Ac­ces­sories: A Jaguar for your wrist, and other watches to rev your en­gine

Bloomberg Businessweek (Asia) - - Contents -

The same urge we get to buy a fancy car makes us sali­vate over 200-com­po­nent me­chan­i­cal time­keep­ers. Here are five to rev your en­gines. By Stephen Pul­virent

AUTODROMO GROUP B

$925; autodromo.com

Group B was an early-1980s rac­ing phe­nom­e­non— like Nascar but faster and a lot more dan­ger­ous. The Autodromo has the same souped-up look, reck­less bravado not in­cluded.

OMEGA SEAMASTER BULLHEAD

$9,600; omegawatches.com

Cre­ated with ac­tual driv­ers in mind, bullhead chrono­graphs put the stop­watch but­tons on top for eas­ier ac­cess at the wheel.

BREMONT JAGUAR MKIII

$4,850; bremont.com

If you can’t have a Jag in your garage, set­tle for one on your wrist.

TAG HEUER CAR­RERA CAL­I­BRE 18

$5,450; tagheuer.com

Based on the com­pany’s ear­li­est rac­ing watches, this re­design has a compact face and sleek vin­tage styling.

BAUME & MERCIER CAPELAND SHELBY COBRA

$4,450; baume-et-mercier.com

Like its name­sake, a tiny Bri­tish sports car with a big Ford en­gine, this Swiss time­piece puts max­i­mal func­tion into a min­i­mal pack­age.
